Hello, Everyone!

First, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Pride month! I am committed to maintaining a school environment where LGBTQ+ voices are centered in our curriculum and where LGBTQ+ students, family members, and staff feel valued, elevated, and supported.

Second, I am thrilled to officially join the High Meadow community this week. Thank you for the many warm welcomes on my first day and for giving me the honor to lead this thriving school. Over the next two weeks, I’ll be devoting the majority of my time to getting to know the students, meeting with faculty and administration, and conducting informal observations to learn about the current state of the organization. From the information I gather, I’ll be designing a work plan for the summer and sharing it with all of you by the end of the month to ensure that we are ready to start well for the 2021-2022 school year. I will also be working with the administrative team to engage families over the course of the coming weeks so that I can begin to get to know all of you and hear about your hopes and dreams for your kids and for our school. You can expect weekly updates of the work I’m doing and what I’m learning for the remainder of the school year.

I’m looking forward to this new chapter for all of us.   I am humbled to be entrusted with the responsibility of upholding our mission of empowering independent thinkers in a diverse, democratic school community.

With Gratitude,

Michelle Healy
Head of School
